It was touch and go for a while, but the University of Nottingham Men’s CC finally realised their cricket tour to Barbados with Sporta this month. With some sharp planning and re-booking efforts on our part, and determination to go on theirs. Ollie Jarvis commented:

“Our trip provided us with unforgettable experiences that we will remember forever. When the tour was cancelled twice due to the pandemic, nobody expected that the necessary changes could be made to make it third time lucky. We thank Michael Craigs for his excellent work that ensured tour was able to happen. The liaison staff in Barbados were equally as helpful and definitely had our best interests at heart. The highlights of the trip were the Catamaran Cruise and the Harbour Lights Dinner Show. On behalf of the University of Nottingham Men’s Cricket Club, thank you Sporta Tours.

Following a recommendation to book with us, the group approached Sporta with an outline of their requirements. We devised a 9-day tour featuring a catamaran cruise, brewery tour, boatyard excursion, water park trip and dinner at the renowned Oistins Market.

The tour was originally scheduled for June this year but had to be postponed twice before it could finally go ahead. Days before their arrival, team sports were banned on the island, so we quickly revised the itinerary, adding more excursions in place of the cricket and sponsored their tour shirts.  

According to Michael Craigs, “We love working with University squads and clubs.  With an outline budget, preferred dates and a flavour of the sort of excursions groups want, it’s great to get planning fixtures and trips. And we always go the extra mile, whether it’s working around the challenges a pandemic can pose, or sponsoring tour shirts.
